|SF Celebrates VE Day 1918||
Subject: The crowd knew we won?
The masks are common in local "gatherings".
It was too late to protest, and well a party is a party!
And other oneliners to follow I am sure. But rhetoric and irony aside, this is a very interesting snippet of history. You could interpret the narrator as setting an anti war tone to the voice over. I don't see any hateful signs that he mentions though.
Subject: Many are wearing face masks
The 1918-1919 global influenza pandemic was in full swing. Lots of people are wearing white cloth masks over their mouths and noses.
I think it's interesting that the narrator at the end says "They are celebrating that the war is over. And there will never be another."
This movie is about WWI.
Subject: San Francisco Is Fascinating.
They had re-built their city after the disasters of the earthquake and fire. With optimism they had held a magnificient Fair in 1915. A decade earlier they had more than their share of tragedies and now they were rejoicing at the end of the great war,. To appreciate this magnificent collection, further reading is essential
Subject: Worth a look
I think this is really the most boring collection of movies by Archive.org
Or maybe just San Francisco is boring.
OK, this News Film Footage is interesting, you see really old cars, a celebration on the streets with a big crowd of people and you hear a classic narrator.
It's a little bit fun and enough interesting.
And it's NOT in color.
